Give your research a long-lasting legacy: Follow these six steps to get your family history book into the library stacks.
The more we pursue our family history, the more we want to share it with others. But even those with big families still have limited audiences. Maybe you can pass out copies of your research to your three kids, four grandkids, two uncles, six cousins, and that distant relative you found online. But don’t you wish you could share your ancestor discoveries with a wider audience?
As it turns out, many of the same places we pore over records—archives, libraries and historical societies—would love to have copies of our research on their shelves. Their patrons would eagerly peruse them. So how do you get your own research into the stacks of your favorite repositories? Follow these six steps.
